I have truly found that as in all things, less is more important! I feel the same way about natural vs. make-up.
Early in my 20s I took a job that I stayed at for eleven years. I could never be bothered with wearing makeup. The only time I did as when I was sick. I figured if I had makeup on that no one would notice that I wasn't feeling well.
One day at about three years into that job, when I was not feeling well, this lovely lady that was one of the higher ups there took me aside and said, " Maureen you're not feeling well are you?" I was flabbergasted and I guess that "surly I protested too much!" She said, "You always wear make-up when you don't feel well!" Busted!!!
Then decades later as I went through cancer, I only wore my smile and that was all I saw everyday when I looked in the mirror. I was so happy because I still had my other blessings. Those blessings had not left so I just smiled. About a year after the cancer someone started posting pictures of us volunteers at a fundraiser. Well, those pictures were the first inkling I had of how sickly I looked. But I must say despite how I felt, the most beautiful and non sickly thing was my smile.
So once again, a smile is the thing I wear best. I am not proficient at putting on make-up but I'm so good at wearing a smile and unlike make-up, no one can ever tell you that you put too much on. They can never tell you the color of your smile clashes with your eye color or lipstick.
Less is so much more!
